Narrative and Notes
ReliableBinalshibh traveled from Malaysia to Thailand for a few days before going home to Germany. The reasons for the stop are unclear. Binalshibh purchased several items of jewelry that he later gave to Mohamed Atta. These were to be worn by the 9-11 hijackers so they would appear wealthy and attract less attention as they passed through security.1
